There are not that many tables and a lot of the business is carry out. Food was good and on time as promised. We will go here again when we are in town.

Bought pork steaks due to recommendations of salesperson at counter. I took them home for dinner they were huge looked good and juicy but when we cut into them they were tough and tasted of lighter fluid they were so bad that we could not eat them. I thought we may have just had a bad batch so went back... More

Hey Jasper, there has NEVER been, and never will be any lighter fluid used in any pit of mine. I have also never served a tough pork steak in my life. I am also the guy at the counter, that conversation never happened. Please try to be accurate and honest in your reviews. Woody More

Big Woody's is a small but great BBQ joint. The pulled pork is the best I have had in years! That goes for the Ribs too! If you like BBQ, you need to try this place. You wont regret it!

We visited Big Woody's BBQ for the first time and were favorably impressed. I had the wet pulled pork sandwich with BBQ beans and a drink. (Its a Coke place!) The meat was well prepared. The sweet and spicy sauce was very good. The BBQ beans were excellent. They have additional sauce available , which I added to the sandwich.... More

Fantastic BBQ! Stumbled across this little gem about a year ago and have made Woodys my go-to-place for ribs, brisket, and tasty sides (the Hog balls are awesome!). Far more consistent and tastier than Sugarfire's BBQ. These folks know what they are doing with BBQ...absolute best 'Q in the area!

a hidden gem located in a strip mall in suburban St Chuck! the food is outstanding. ribs are tasty, fall off the bone tender, and spiced just right. pulled pork is as it should be...tender, juicy, and not overly sauced. the portions are large. sides are above average in both taste and size. do give this small restaurant a try....

Flew into STL on the way to Columbia, and stopped here for lunch due to the solid reviews. I got the pulled pork sandwich and a side of the deep fried okra. My guest got the Hot Mess sandwich. We were both very impressed with the BBQ, because many places overdo the sauce on their pulled pork, but not here.... More

Don't have to be big and advertise to be exceptional. Woody's brisket is a favorite for my husband and I. We are BBQ fans and enjoy trying all the BBQ stops both in this area and when traveling. Woody's has become the standard we judge other places by. Is it as good as Woody's? we ask. Woody's brisket surpasses the... More

Very small family owned operation that serves great BBQ. Brisket is great as long as they have it. Pork Steak is huge and pulled pork is wonderful as well.
